Good morning everyone,
This is my first post. I had Roux N Y on January 3rd. Everything is going GREAT and I am very happy with the results so far. I began to be able to eat pureed food last Thursday. I am trying to slow down my eating and take the suggested 20-30 minutes to eat, but I am finding it difficult for two reasons.
1) The amount of food is obviously very small. Breakfast is one scrambled egg, etc etc.
2) The food gets cold if I slow down long enough.
Other than simply microwaving the plate halfway through the meal, has anyone found a way to keep their food warm for their slower eating times?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
At this point I wouldn't worry about making meals lasting 30 minutes. On a side not, I didn't have a RNY and my nutritionist said if I was taking longer than 15 minutes to eat, I might be eating too much.

I'm still at the puréed stage, where everything is measured so I know I'm not eating too much. Just trying to go slower. :)
Thanks. I really appreciate your feedback.
Place boiling water in a bowl, and put your larger plate or bowl on top of that and food will stay warm.
I am sure you can think of more was to keep a plate hot that don't requiring getting up to reheat.
